Introductions, welcome, and overview of the week
During the week you’ll enjoy a hearty breakfast, a guided trail run in various locations around the Tuscan Region that will fit in perfectly with a taper week leading to the marathon, running clinics covering hill running technique, training, and race strategy, and an allotted time each day to explore local points of interest, including two days when we visit the beautiful town of Siena on one day and Pienza on another. Pienza is a UNESCO heritage sight, and built as the ideal renaissance town. A frequent visitor to Pienza says, “Frankly it’s the closest place to heaven on earth that I’ve ever been.”
